Tambopata National Reserve


Spanning vast areas of savanna and rainforest, the Tambopata National Reserve rests in the Amazon Basin of southeast Peru, and is known for its spectacular displays of wildlife and variety of fun outdoor activities. Perhaps the most famous drawcard of the area is the mass of rainbow-coloured macaws which feed on the salted walls of the reserve’s lakes in their thousands. Home to more species of birds and butterflies than any place of similar size on earth as well as monkeys, otters, jaguars and tapirs, the rainforest provides the ultimate adventure for hikers hoping to see animals. A selection of guided tours are on offer, giving visitors the chance to meander along canopy walkways or explore the jungle by night. Don’t miss the opportunity to cruise along the exquisite rivers and lakes in small motorised boats or canoes.
